What sport would you say costs more money in general, scuba diving or golf?

Question by JLTB99: What sport would you say costs more money in general, scuba diving or golf?
My buddy and I both scuba dive and golf and he is so adamant that golf is a more expensive sport than scuba diving. I couldn’t disagree more and want your input if your not bias to just one sport. I have worked at a golf course and a dive shop and would say diving is a much more expensive sport in general.

Answer by Rick-E
Scuba is expensive to get started in. Upfront costs for scuba would probably make you think that scuba is more expensive. But over all, golf is more expensive by far. Greens fees, memberships fees and equipment are very costly. They are ongoing. Not to mention clothes that are bought for playing in are expensive if you play regularly. If you play tournaments forget it, golf far exceeds scuba in costs.

    I’d actually call it a tie. You can spend as much or as little as you’d like for either. You can gear up for both sports at about the same cost and the ongoing costs associated can vary depending on how avid you are in each. You can blow 125 bucks on a two tank charter or 125 bucks on green fees. It’s hard to compare apples and oranges but overall, it can still come out as the same costs.
